Language, Literacy and Communication Groups
We are “Zoom-ing” with you!
Weekly Camps offered
June, July, and August 2020
For the continued safety of our clients and their families, our private practice will be offering several therapy groups this summer via Telepractice!
Through evidence-based approaches, your clinician will employ direct support and coaching to improve your child’s skills, enabling them the best start for school in the fall. We are offering social communication skills development to boost his/her social speaking confidence and to help with friendships. We are also offering a structured approach to reading and overall literacy skills acquisition.
Choose your group and therapy camp based on your child’s language, literacy, and social communication needs. Groups of 2-4 children will run one hour per day Mon-Fri for a 5-day therapy camp. Cost is $55 per daily 1-hour group session, $275 for the week.
